Sally Packard has exhibited her installation and sculpture throughout Texas, as well as across the United States, Sweden, Poland and England. As an undergraduate she was trained in theatrical costume and set design. For many years, she lived in New York City and worked for companies such as The Metropolitan Opera, The Santa Fe Opera, Minnesota Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, The Guthrie Theater, The Jim Henson Company and The Juilliard School of Music. This experience greatly informed Professor Packard’s visual art practice and her interest in cross-disciplinary studies in higher education, particularly in the visual arts.

Currently, she is a visiting scholar at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York. For six years she has taught in the School of Art at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas.
